Crane Viewing Tours

Footbridge Evening Tours


After a presentation on the Great Sandhill Crane Migration, you’ll accompany your guide to our private footbridge over the Platte River. From there you’ll enjoy a 360-degree open-air view of large crane flocks crisscrossing the sky above as they travel to roost for the night, along with the sights and sounds of other migratory birds and wildlife.

You’ll also watch as the cranes gather on the grassland prairie before lifting over the cottonwood trees to roost on the river channel downstream from your vantage point on the bridge. Bridge tours last two hours. Visitors are free to depart when they wish but may not return to the bridge afterward. Children must be 12 and up and accompanied by an adult.
